Collin and I walked along Ambleside beach, as planned, after having brunch at the bakery cafe. From the cafe, it took 30 min or so to reach Park Royal, and he enjoyed looking around one shop to another. Eventually, I was kind of dehydrated and we were looking for a tea store.

Murchie’s Tea & Coffee is in the Park Royal shopping mall, which I didn’t think you can order a drink to go. (I thought they just sell tea leaves.)

I ordered from their cappuccino bar menu.

For some reason, they put two pack of tea leaves and also the water was extremely hot, so I couldn’t drink right away and my green tea got bitter by the hot water. Here is an explanation for the best water temperature to make a green tea.

On another sunny weekend, Collin and I decided to go for walk. He said he had never been to the Park Royal shopping mall, which was surprising me! So, I suggested him have brunch and go for walk on beach side trail before going the mall.

Now is the chance! The last time when I visited this place with my friend, we had slices of pie, and I found they had breakfast and lunch menu, too. I was excited to re-visit for that.

Savary Island Pie Company is located on Marine Drive, close to 15th street. That is the west side of Ambleside or Park Royal in West Vancouver. This small bakery cafe was packed when we arrived, and luckily we were able to have a seat.

Grilled Chicken and Fresh Basil Sandwich

The sandwiches tasted so good! He liked his grilled cheese, and I liked the organic chicken with fresh basil! You know what? The bread was so good.

When I ordered, there was some one-bite bread samples at the cash register. I tasted it, and right away, I bought one before I even had the sandwiches.

One of my friends and I went hiking on a sunny day in September. It was a bit steeper in the beginning than I thought, and after 9km of walking, we were so exhausted. As I suggested to her even before hiking that their sweets could help us get back energy, we decided to go there.

Savary Island Pie Company is a few blocks west from Ambleside or Park Royal in West Vancouver. It may be difficult to find a parking spot during lunch time, etc.

My choice, Slice of Raspberry Blueberry Pie
